just because of all of the weiners in the world -- all of the straight people with their perfect family values. so magical in every way. i think this is a shame this day and age. gay teacher at catholic high school fired after marrying partner. he was fired after he married his partner and photos were published in the newspaper last month. ken of rancho [ inaudible ] was fired from his teaching position at st. lucy's high school days after he married his partner of ten years. officials have been aware of his sec wall orientation for about ten of the 17 years he was employed at the school. his attorney said ken was one of the school's star educators. the decision to fire him off he

6:31am
this show is about analyzing, criticizing, and holding policy to the fire. are you encouraged by what you heard the president say the other night? is this personal, or is it political? a lot of my work happens by doing the things that i'm given to doing anyway, by staying in touch with everything that is going on politically and putting my own nuance on it. in reality it's not like they actually care. this is purely about political grandstanding. i've worn lots of hats, but i've always kept this going. i've been doing politics now for a dozen years. (vo) he's been called the epic politics man. he's michael shure and his arena is the war room. >> these republicans in congress that think the world ends at the atlantic ocean border and pacific ocean border. the bloggers and the people that are sort of compiling the best of the day. i do a lot of looking at those people as well. not only does senator rubio just care about rich people, but somehow he thinks raising the minimum wage is a bad idea for the middle class. but we do care about them right?

romney may have made his name as a moderate governor but his platform as a presidential nominee was a grab bag from the wish list of conservative activists. opposition to same-sex marriage, and a hard line stance on immigration. how did that work out for ya? and indeed in the nine months since romney lost, republicans have only moved further to the right. falling further into the [ inaudible ] and destruction. >> entrancesense. >> stephanie: you know what i'm saying. don't be obstinate. my point is they have to take noted fatberg, rush limbaugh's advise. 54% of republicans say their party's leadership isn't conservative enough. and they compromise too much in
